So, how are everyone's submissions coming along?
I'm not real thrilled with what I've got right now... I've painted myself into a corner.
I was just walking a few blocks to get some lunch when I had this great melodic idea just pop into my head: WAY more inspiring than what I've been forcing out so far.
Eureka! I'll scrap the other thing and start on this as soon as I get home!, I thought.
I was trying to hold it in my mind when, like-- ten seconds later an Ice Cream Truck rolls up behind me blaring something like this.
I almost scannered out trying to hold on, but:
Poof-- the idea vanished like a fart in a tornado.
Anyway-- I've always heard that if you can't recall a melody later on, it probably wasn't that great after all.
